The latest film to suffer a release delay is Ryan Reynolds’ video game comedy Free Guy, which has officially been pulled off Disney’s calendar.
Ryan Reynolds’ video game comedy Free Guy has officially been delayed indefinitely. The Shawn Levy-directed film stars Reynolds as an unassuming bank teller named Guy who frequently gets attacked and held up by gun-toting criminals. Why? He’s a non-playable character in a video game similar to Grand Theft Auto. When Guy learns the truth behind his existence, he’s plunged into a journey of self-discovery as he fights to keep the game alive. Free Guy also stars Jodie Comer, Joe Keery, Lil Rel Howery, Utkarsh Ambudkar, and Taika Waititi.
Free Guy was originally slated for release in July of this year, but the coronavirus pandemic led to Disney pushing it to December. For some time, the studio remained committed to this time frame, though it was always likely the film would be delayed once more. In fact, the Free Guy cast came together to make a video poking fun at their preparedness for a possible delay. Now, it turns out that video was on the right track.
Per Variety, Disney has officially delayed Free Guy. Instead of giving it a new release date, the studio has removed it from its release calendar entirely, leaving it unclear as to when Free Guy will actually be released. Disney has also pulled Kenneth Branagh’s Death on the Nile off the calendar.
